understood this was not just about a candidate. it was not just about joe biden or barack obama. this was about us. who we are as a nation. what values we cherish. how hard we're willing to fight to make sure that those values live not just for today but for future generations. all of you here understood and were committed to the basic notion that when we put our shoulders to the wheel of history, it moves. it moves. it moves forward. [ applause ] and that's part of what we celebrate when we come together for inauguration. you know, yesterday americans in all 50 states took part in a national day of service. tomorrow, hundreds of thousands will join us in the national mall. and what the inauguration reminds us of is the role we have as fellow citizens in promoting a common good. even as we carry out our individual responsibilities. the sense there's something larger than ourselves that gives shape and meaning to our lives. the theme of this year's inauguration is our people and our future. throughout my career what's always given me energy and inspiration and hope, what's allowe

that president obama made his agenda today. a little over one month since the brutal shooting at sandy hook. the president changed the rules on gun with the stroke of his pen. signing 23 executive actions he says will strengthen background checks and expand safety programs in schools. the president is also calling for action in increasingly gridlocked congress. >> the most important changes we can make depend on congressional action. ask your member of congress if they support universal background checks to keep guns out of the wrong hands. ask them if they support renewing a ban on military-style assault weapons and high capacity magazines. ask them what is more important, doing whatever it takes to get a a grade from the gun lobby that funds their campaigns, or giving parents some peace of mind when they drop their child off for first grade? >> joining me now is richard blumenthal of connecticut. he wants to target ammunition sales and require background checks on anyone who buys bullets. your reaction as to president obama's very bold and ambitious plans today for new gun legislation. >>

for you at constantcontact.com/try. >>> today, president obama is pushing forward with his sweeping gun plans, vowing to make it a reality. the white house knows it will be a tough fight. chris murphy, welcome to you, senator. i spoke to your colleague last night. there is a sense although many senators and congressmen and women are determined to try to help the president get his way, there are an equally large number of democratic senators and a lot of republicans in the congress who just simply won't wear because they're worried about the nra coming after them and driving them out of office. what do we do about that? >> well, listen, i think the nra is in a fundamentally different position than they were just 35 days ago. they don't have a grip on congress like they did. and you have seen it. you have seen democratic senators come out and say they're willing to look at assault weapons ban. you have seen republicans in the house of representatives from places like georgia saying they'll look at background checks and bans on high-capacity ammunition clips. no one should be afraid of the
